NCLEX-RN Exam Resources

CNA and the Canadian Nursing Students’ Association created this list of resources to help students prepare for the NCLEX-RN entry-to-practice exam.

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) develops the NCLEX-RN exam. Courses and materials that are not affiliated with NCSBN or the NCLEX-RN may not reflect the exam’s content accurately. As such, they may be used to supplement, not replace, NCBSN-approved NCLEX-RN resources.

Please note that CNA does not endorse any preparatory materials, courses or host sites. Whenever possible, CNA and CNSA have attempted to identify the most economic source for a product or material.

Free resources

The following items were selected based on feedback from nurse educators and students, but is not a comprehensive list of all available preparatory resources. We will update this list periodically.
